Scabarites refer to any of the "Minions of Scabaras". They are fairly strong monsters that can hit rather hard. To receive them as a slayer assignment, players must have done most of the Contact! quest.
Slayer strategy[edit | edit source]
Sustainable Setup[edit | edit source]
A good and sustainable setup is to use full Guthan's equipment to kill locust riders in the Sophanem Dungeon. Use Protect from Missiles in the downtime between healing with Guthan's or food. They use ranged attacks that can hit over 20 on lower- and mid-leveled players. With this setup, you fight one Locust Rider at a time; they re-spawn rapidly. Locust riders frequently drop coins 2,000gp and noted items. They will occasionally drop un-noted bass for longer sustainability.
While slower to kill, these Scabarites are located close to the dungeon entrance - just to the east - making it easy to bank up the ladder and restore Prayer points in Sophanem. This also makes it easy to stay in one spot and avoid other aggressive enemies and traps. Another alternative is to use Protect from Magic and fight Scarab Mages, also near the dungeon entrance.
